Worldview Conference with Sean McDowell

October 14 & 15, 2022

Everyone has one, but not everyone understands where they got it and whether or not it lines up with the Bible. Know what it is? It’s a worldview, and it shapes the way we see the world and how we live within it. Join us on October 14 & 15 for a Worldview Conference that will help you better navigate and engage our culture from a biblical perspective. We'll hear sessions on three main topics from keynote speaker Sean McDowell: "Atheist Encounter," "True for You, but not True for Me," and "The Case for Pro-Life."

The cafe will be open and snacks will be provided during the conference. Childcare will not be available.

  • Saturday, October 15 • 9:00am–12:00pm
Cost:
  • $12 / person

TOPICS COVERED

Atheist Encounter

What would you say if an atheist challenged your deepest convictions about God and the Bible? In this session, Sean role plays an atheist, raises tough questions against the faith by taking live questions from the audience, and then steps out of character and helps the audience reflect on the experience. Sean has done this presentation in small youth groups and in large stadiums. This is a hands-on experience where you will walk away motivated and equipped to more lovingly and intelligently make a case for Christianity.

True for You, but Not True for Me

Don't we live in a "post-truth" culture that cares more about feelings than facts? People often say, “That may be your truth, but it’s not mine,” as if truth changes based upon what we believe about it or how we feel. In this session, we will consider why truth is vital, learn how to properly define it, examine objections against its knowability and existence, and grasp the powerful implications of truth for our daily lives.

The Case for Pro-Life

Abortion is one of the most hotly debated subjects in culture today. In this session, Sean graciously and yet persuasively provides scientific and philosophical evidence to demonstrate that the unborn is a distinct human being from the moment of conception. He also provides a roadmap for how to respond to the some of the most common objections raised against the pro-life position.
